Watching the Lehigh/New Hampshire Game Today (ESPN3)


For whatever reason, you didn't make the trip to Durham, New Hampshire.  You've popped your popcorn, iced your Yuenglings, and put the meatballs in the crockpot - and then you panic.

How do I watch the game?  What is ESPN3?  Can I watch it on my TV?  Do I need to subscribe to something?  WHAT DO I DO???

Never fear.  LFN's here to help.


This week's FCS playoff game, and all the FCS playoff games for that matter, are available on ESPN3, ESPN's streaming service.

ESPN3 is available with anyone with a subscription to a some sort of service that has ESPN.  This can come in a variety of ways: through Service Electric, Comcast Xfinity, Verizon FiOS, etc.  If you're a cord-cutter, it's available through a Sling TV subscription to ESPN.

If you are watching ESPN3 on a phone or tablet, you can download the ESPN app and click on the "Watch Now" button to catch the game.  You might need to plug in login credentials to authorize it, but once that's done, you're good to go.

If you are watching it on a laptop or computer, you can click on http://www.espn3.com and find the "Lehigh at New Hampshire" link on the list.  Click, and it will play in a web browser.

If you have Chrome on your computer and a Chromecast stick plugged into your TV, you can turn your live stream into a "tab", and then easily cast the tab to Chromecast to display on your TV by clicking the special button on the web browser.  (This is what I do.)

If you have a Roku stick, Playstation 4 (with Vue), or Amazon Fire TV or other App-enabled TV devices, you may have the ability to start the "WatchESPN" app directly on your TV already.  Fire it up, choose "Lehigh at New Hampshire", and go.

The ESPN3 broadcast won't simply be a webcam and a person with an Eisenhower era microphone: it's full-blown coverage, with Bob Picozzi and Marcus Ray calling the game.

If want to listen to the game on the radio (as I will be), you can catch the Lehigh game feed online here, or you can listen on AM at three spots around the Lehigh Valley on the AM Dial: 1160, 1230 and 1320.  Matt Kerr,  Mike Yadush and Steve Lomangino are going to be the radio crew.

There is a full buffet of terrific college football today at both the FBS and FCS levels, and the first round of the FCS playoffs unfortunately fall smack-dab in the middle of it, with six of the eight playoff games going on simultaneously in the middle of a slew of terrific Rivalry games.  (Well, for Lehigh and Lafayette fans, they are still baby Rivalries; none of these teams have played each other 152 times, like the Leopards and Mountain Hawks have.)

2:00 PM Charleston Southern at Wofford
2:00 PM North Carolina A&T at Richmond
2:00 PM St. Francis (PA) at Villanova

Seven Positive Thoughts About All the Patriot League Recruiting Classes

It's recruiting season.  Every incoming recruit is a Patriot League all-star, everyone is a first team all-American, everyone is undefeated.  It's all good times, a chance for kids to be admitted to some of the best Universities in the world.  In that, it's a win for everyone.

While we wait for each of the remaining recruits to be announced as a part of their recruiting classes, I thought I'd comb through all of the incoming classes of the Patriot League and tell you what sticks out to me.

This summart isn't a ratings-based system, than folks like 247Sports have in terms of measuring the number of "starred recruits" (they list Holy Cross as the "winner"), or even a hybrid-based system, like LFN's yearly Patsy Ratings (last seasons "winner": Lehigh) or HERO Sports' list of the top overall FCS recruits (which lists Lafayette as the "winner").  It's just one guy, looking at the recruit lists, and giving his opinion.

What Are You Doing the Night of Lehigh's 2017 Home Opener?

I have this vision.

It's the weekend of the home opener at Murray Goodman Stadium, Labor Day weekend.  It could be a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.

And it's 6:00 PM.

In 2018, the Lehigh football team will open the season with a big celebration of the football program - at Navy, Lehigh's first game against an FBS team in over a decade.

In 2017, why not, as a one-off opportunity, try to have one Lehigh football game, the home opener, be the first-ever night game at Murray Goodman Stadium?

Will it cost money?  Yes.  Will it be easy?  Probably not.

However, is it doable?  I've got to believe the answer is "yes".


Sandusky/Paterno Timeline Keeps Getting More Difficult To Ignore

The crimes committed by Gerald Sandusky continue to be a band-aid that is re-applied, and continuously ripped off, the arms of those of love Penn State.

Already convicted by a court of law, Sandusky has what is effectively a life sentence, while others who were in power at Penn State during the 1998 period where sex crimes were reported internally, Graham Spanier, Gary Schulz and Tim Curley, have still not faced any sort of trial and are still at-large today.

Last week, with an interesting sentence appearing deep in an insurance lawsuit involving a Sandusky victim settlement, the band-aid was once again ripped off.

The details of the lawsuit claim that Joe Paterno chose not to act in 1976 when one victim reported abuse by Sandusky, while Sarah Ganim, the hero reporter who broke the Sandusky story wide-open five years ago, added a second story of abuse in the 1970s where Paterno pressured one of Sandusky's victims over the phone in the 1971 to not press charges against him.
